A few of us were talking about the job market the other day. It seems like even with so many people out of work, I see want ads in several places, even here in our town.   I have heard some say, “I’m too educated to work here or there.” Minimum wage is $7.25 per hour. If you were making nothing per hour, that would be $7...

I have all of my life been somewhat of an activist.  I have always jumped on the bandwagon if an idea needs to go to fruition with banner success.  I have served on many committees in our hometown that have been triumphant.   I have this innate characteristic to never be able to say “NO” to anything asked of me....

Growing up in Kosciusko, many of us are familiar with Munson’s Crossing. It is located at the end of Knox Road, a few yards from where the Old Moose Lodge stood.   Churches had hayrides that would end there with a bonfire and wiener roasts, families enjoyed picnics and even some young “adventurers” were asked to leave...

I have told you about the old Strain House that my grandfather, on my Price side, lived in when I was young.  It was an old civil war home and in the day time, quite neglected, but in the dark of night it was completely frightening (this was a pre-Civil War homestead). At my young age, it looked many years older than the hundred or so...

They were a cross-breed of dachshund and bulldog.  As I...

Cotton bolls in all of their glory, coloring the landscape of the work-tended land have now opened to magnificent splendor!   Is there anything more beautiful or peaceful to gaze upon than a matured cotton field?  I surely do not think so.   My husband and I were traveling the roads again yesterday, and we passed several...

Changing seasons brings about the transformation of greens to golds, reds, yellows, and so many colors in between.   As I sit on my back porch at the Circle S, I look out over the vast pasturelands and I can readily see these changes.   The grass has slowed its growing time; the flowers of summer are beginning to look tired and...

Have you had a chance to see Big Red Band this year? They are as magnificent as ever.  I was in Big Red, and all my children enjoyed their time in this organization.  I had one child, my oldest son, who really relished his seven years of playing drums. Actually, he was very good at it and acquired a full scholarship to Ole Miss...
